Does anyone have germinating and growing information on Crotalaria retusa? Yes, full sun. should they be started inside, and how far ahead of time do they develop?

This is from the B&T website:

Crotalaria retusa seeds will usually germinate in 21-30 days.
Sow Crotalaria retusa seeds about 2mm deep in a Well drained seed sowing mix at about 22°C.

Soak Crotalaria retusa seeds in warm water, which should be changed daily. Most seeds swell up when they are soaked, those that do should be sown immediately. Seeds that don't swell can be gently scarified.

And here's a link:
